I'm excited to officially announce that I'm working with Comstock's magazine here in Sacramento on a monthly web series about those who have gone through major career shifts to get to where they are today.
For example, the first installment was a story about a couple who worked their corporate jobs while opening (and now running) a new brewery.
What constitutes a major career shift?
Well, it's simple. Let's say you went to culinary school only to end up working as a professional photographer. I'd like to hear your story. Perhaps you were a touring musician for 15 years and now help people with financial planning. I'd definitely like to talk with you. Maybe you left your job as a teacher to open a coffee shop. Please—by all means—email me.
Now, I know many of you reading this are not in the greater Sacramento region, but we live in such a small world. If you know anyone who lives in Sacramento (or the nine surrounding counties) and might be a good fit, send them my way!
I can't promise that everyone who emails me will be featured, but the only way for me to hear about interesting stories like the examples above is for people to share them with me.
Here's how to send me your story:
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Career Shift.
- Tell me your name and your current title and/or business name
- Give me some quick specifics about your story: What was your major career shift? How did it happen? What caused you to make the change?
That's it! Then, I'll respond and let you know if the story might be a good fit for the column. Sound good? Excellent.
I can't wait to hear from you!
